Kristen from We Are THAT Family is asking bloggers to post a picture that defines motherhood for us. This picture immediately came to mind:

It’s a picture of Jacob meeting and holding his little brother, Lucas, for the very first time. I still tear up every time I see this picture because other than both their births, it is one of the sweetest memories I have.

When I had Jacob I could never imagine loving anyone as much as I loved him. When I was pregnant I worried that I wouldn’t love this second child as much as I loved my first born. I couldn’t imagine having enough love in my heart and at the time thought that having two children would mean I’d have to love my first child less.

It was in the time after the birth of Lucas, when I looked at his face and especially when I held both children in my arms, that I realized that it was possible to love both of my children with 100% of myself. This picture is a great reminder of that moment.

  1. What a beautiful picture. It’s amazing how we are capable of loving all of our children completely and wholly. Thank you for stopping in at my blog too. :)
